A new traveling exhibit about the difference in houses around the world has opened at the Long Island Children’s Museum, 11 Davis Ave., Garden City, and will be at the museum through Jan. 8.

“Your House, My House” explores how culture, climate, tradition and geography influence the way a house is built. The exhibit includes four themed areas — large, walk-in houses, small houses, floating houses and houses that pack up and go with a family.

Kids will explore interior elements such as furniture, cooking utensils, games and musical instruments as well. Countries represented in the exhibit include Ireland, Egypt, South Africa and more.

The exhibit is in English and Spanish and is free with museum admission of $13 per person and $12 for ages 65 and older. Children younger than 1 are free. For more information, call 516-224-5800 or visit licm.org
